WJRS November Meeting - SATURDAY, November 19,
Cherry Hill Library, 12 pm - 3 pm

Our speaker will be Ken Borrmann, a Philadelphia Rose Society member, and a very successful horticultural exhibitor at the local, district, and national level. He brings his exquisitely beautiful roses to our annual rose show in June every year and typically sweeps the court with his amazing hybrid teas, minifloras, and miniatures. At the Saturday, November 19th meeting, he will speak about his rose growing system, his very successful practices and rose care methods, and how he selects his roses for each new season and for rose shows. This meeting will be held at the Cherry Hill Library.
We will begin at Noon with light lunch refreshments.
Do make plans to attend!
